Still the best part of the new Doom

I saw this (as a GIF) days ago and I still think about it and it still makes me happy. Perhaps you, like me, don't have any particular intention to play Doom right now, unless maybe it's cheap in a sale or some kind souls buys it for you. ...   read

'May the 4th Be With You' is a bad marketing holiday, please don't celebrate it

Many holidays are such a foreign concept to me. I get that we, as humans, have an inherent need to celebrate things and have excuses to see each other. I like to do that every week by...celebrating things and seeing people. But for others, ...   read

#Icarus is the new #Darksiders2

I spent part of my day playing the Mirror's Edge Catalyst beta. Pretty good! I'm basically in agreement with Steven's recent preview. Outside some of the junk that DICE shoved in, probably at the behest of EA to satiate the masses that...   read

What is the silliest ability you've had to unlock in a game?

Earlier this week, the increasingly-homeless-looking Steven Hansen wrote up a preview for DICE's upcoming Mirror's Edge Catalyst. He briefly mentioned that new skills have to be unlocked. "An upgrade tree? Why?" Steven asked, rhetorically. ...   read

Naked body pile executions are why Hitman is so good

You may remember from my review that the new, episodic Hitman is good as heck, "a dope slapstick murder comedy." I recounted a few funny tales here, including a pretty amusing, but not all that creative kill (it's practically set up for you...   read

If you have to cannibalize someone, where do you start?
